Supported machines are:

mac99      Mac99 based PowerMAC

ref405ep   ref405ep

Using -M prep shows some text, which said it couldn't read/understand the disk format, so I realized that it probably wants a partition table.

No Macintosh was ever prep compatible. You probably want to use one of
the first two entries in the list instead. I would suggest g3bw, which
is also apparently the default.

With g3bw the screen stays black and I get those messages:

chris@novo:~/qemu$ qemu-system-ppc -M g3bw -boot c -snapshot -m 512 -hda /mnt/sda14/tmp/lombipseudodisk -localtime
qemu: warning: could not load VGA bios '/usr/share/qemu/video.x'

With mac99 it goes further (shows graphical output for a moment, then back to a text screen, with messages "Unresolved kernel trap(cpu 0): 0x700 Program DSISR=0x42000000 DAR=... generating stack backtrace prior to panic .. .. .. panic: We are hanging here...":

chris@novo:~/qemu$ qemu-system-ppc -M mac99 -boot c -snapshot -m 512 -hda /mnt/sda14/tmp/lombipseudodisk -localtime

Now I've fetched the missing video.x file and put it to /usr/share/qemu/video.x (md5sum 2b70f0425666df8da91715a3363aa007), but I'm still getting exactly the same problems as above, except that the "could not load VGA bios" warning isn't printed anymore.
